Product Overview

STERIS Dart® Daily Air Removal Test is an easy and accurate way to test air removal and steam penetration in pre-vacuum steam sterilizers operating at 132 to 134 ºC (270 to 273 ºF). It is a lightweight, compact, one piece system that is pre-assembled and ready for use. The Dart Daily Air Removal Test eliminates the need to spend time folding towels and preparing packs necessary for traditional Bowie Dick Test Packs. They conform to the ISO 11140 Type 2 standards.


Each day the Dart Daily Air Removal Test should be placed above the drain in an empty sterilizer. As the pre-vacuum sterilization cycle is run, steam will enter the challenge chamber and turn the indicator from yellow to black. When the cycle is complete, simply snap off the window and remove the indicator for your records.


  • Ease of Use - Preassembled test for monitoring the effectiveness of pre-vacuum sterilization cycle.
  • Productivity - Results are immediately visible and easy to read through the clear vial.
  • Easy to Validate - The indicator can be removed and stored for a permanent record.
  • Reliability - Preassembled test offers a consistent daily challenge for your sterilizer.
  • Efficacy - Conforms to ISO 11140 standards.
